User Interface 16 is a user experience and design conference. This year’s conference will run from November 7th – 9th 2011 in Boston (MA, USA). Check out this year’s agenda and list of speakers.
Despite wanting to we’ve never actually managed to make it over to one yet. So we’ve always done our best to catch-up on things by scouring the web for any conference outputs. All of a sudden this has become a lot easier to do!
To promote User Interface 16, the organiser’s are giving everyone the chance to catch-up on all of last year’s (User Interface 15) talks and slides. This is an incredible offer and I’ll definitely be going over each and every one!
All you need to do to get access to these resources is submit your email address prior to October 13th, 11:59 PM ET. This means you’ve only got 24 hours to sign-up for this offer.

So will we be attending UI16?
Unfortunately we’re not going to be able to attend. That said, I can guarantee we’ll be paying attention to any outputs released post-conference.
That’s why we’d really encourage you to sign-up for this offer. First off, the resources released will be great as they’re produced by some of the brightest minds in user experience design. You can also consume them in your own time and it’s safe to say that you’re likely to learn a lot from what these experts have to say. Yes, a year is a long time but there’s no doubt that much of what was covered will still be relevant today.
So many thanks to the wonderful organisers of UI16 your promotional offer is both generous and beneficial. Funnily enough it’s also reminded me of the importance of maximising the lifetime value of your content whilst ignoring those inevitable fears about cannibalising a potential revenue stream.
